What is Appeon Mobile What is Appeon Mobile?

Appeon Mobile is an add-on to PowerBuilder:

  • It allows developing Native Mobile Applications
  • You only need to write PowerBuilder Code
  • Appeon Mobile generates native Apps for iOS and Android Devices

PowerBuilder code to Native Application

 

 

n-tier platform N-Tier Platform for mobile applications

  • Developers create the application with PowerBuilder.
  • They use "Appeon Developer" to deploy the application on "Appeon Server"
  • Administrator use "Appeon Enterprise Manager" for administration purposes
  • End-users access the application with their mobile devices.

Appeon N-tier

 

native application Native application distribution

Appeon Mobile supports generating standard .IPA files for iOS and a standard .APK files for Android, which means that...

  1. End-users can perform the installation wirelessly by either using a direct URL or the included Appeon Workspace
  2. IT administrators use your MDM server* to instruct managed devices to install the native mobile app automatically
  3. Developers can upload and distribute publicly via the Apple App Store and Android Market (Google Play)

*Requires 3rd party solution: Sybase Afaria, Good, AirWatch, MobileIron, BoxTone, Zenprise
